  • Landform - Structure, Evolution, Process Control

    The landform is the boundary surface between atmosphere, hydrosphere, biosphere, pedosphere and lithosphere, where life on earth is located. Processes in this surface system depend to a large extent on thespatial characteristics and the configurational status of the system components. Empirical field studies show that most landform components at ...

  • Cloud-Resolving Modeling of Convective Processes

    Clouds and cloud systems and their interactions with larger scales of motion, radiation, and the Earth’s surface are extremely important parts of weather and climate systems. Their treatment in weather forecast and climate models is a significant source of errors and uncertainty. As computer power increases, it is beginning to be possible to ...

  • Climatology

    Meteorology was first considered in Landolt-Börnstein in Volume III (published 1952) of the 6th Edition. At that time, nine contributions with 153 pages seemed enough. In the meantime, meteorology has experienced a worldwide boom owing to the growing interest in environmental problems. New observation and evaluation methods together with high ...

  • Critical Issues in Weather Modification Research

    The weather on planet Earth is a vital and sometimes fatal force in human affairs. Efforts to control or reduce the harmful impacts of weather go back far in time. In this, the latest National Academies’ assessment of weather modification, the committee was charged to provide and updated assessment of the ability of current and proposed weather ...

  • Modeling Solar Radiation at the Earth´s Surface

    Solar radiation data is important for a wide range of applications, e.g. in engineering, agriculture, health sector, and in many fields of the natural sciences. A few examples showing the diversity of applications may include: architecture and building design e.g. air conditioning and cooling systems; solar heating system design and use; solar ...

  • Large-Scale Disasters: Prediction, Control, and Mitigation

    This volume presents an integrated review of the broad research field of large-scale disasters. It establishes a common framework for predicting, controlling and managing both manmade and natural disasters. There is a particular focus on events caused by weather and climate change. Other topics include air pollution, tsunamis, disaster modeling, ...

  • Oil Spills First Principles

    Marine oil spills are no longer considered unavoidable 'accidents' resulting from adverse environmental conditions or functions of catastrophic events. More than 80% of all spills are the result of 'human error'. The focus of the current legal, regulatory, and convention framework affecting the transportation of oil by ship reflects a recent ...

  • Predictability of Weather and Climate

    The topic of predictability in weather and climate has advanced significantly in recent years, both in understanding the phenomena that affect weather and climate and in techniques used to model and forecast them. This book brings together some of the world's leading experts on predicting weather and climate. It addresses predictability from the ...
